its an absolute stab in the dark,if u have a manual t5 ive heard that they cant handle much torque over the 450nm the stock xrt puts out so it might be loading the gearbox up.

do u park on a hill by any chance??

Fixed the problem now. There were a couple of valves sticking in the valvebody. The issue here was the vehicle was going into reverse when the oil was hot enough to free the valves. Adding Lubegard additives helped free the valves so then I knew it wasn't electrical, a quick inspection of the valvebody showed up some sticky valves so freed them up and problem is now solved. No Ford Dealers I spoke to have had this problem as yet.
